Beautiful Islands? Yup, we've got them.

This update was supposed to be later, but I just couldn't resist doing it now.

If you are referring to the map from the previous entry, the little vacation islands are probably to the east of the Parringshire/Galanos/Waterford area. They could probably fit on the map as they aren't far but they are so small and there are so many...

Also, this was supposed to use a beach mod, however, it didn't work and corrupted the city tile with my first attempt at an island. Sorry for using the Maxis beaches.

Anyway, here is the rather large update!


We will start on Teardrop Island. Named because it looks like one.


These islands you will see almost always have chipping and putting greens, a few beautiful homes, pristine beaches, tennis courts, a pool, and lots of flora.


To the side you can see a pier. Pontoon water taxis serve these piers. All you have to do is call it from your vacation home and it will show up in about five minutes, enough time for you to walk. These allow people to hop between the islands and the big cities like Twilight City and Galanos.


Another island nearby is Efrain Island.



Two houses are under construction on this island near the taxi pier. A tidal wave took out a house here a few years ago. Solar panels were also built to supply power to the island.


Before we move about a mile up the ocean, an aerial view of the two islands.


We move north to another group of islands. Mesa Island has a small hill on it, which a house sits on top of. What a wonderful place to stay.



With a very low bridge and rocky channel, water taxis have a fun time entering this pier. Buoys help during the night so the boats don't go over the rocks.


Walk across the bridge to reach a tiki club and lounge. People from all over the small islands come here to eat some tropical food.


Comé Island is a very elite island with only two houses to rent. 


Finally, Rosa Island, housing one mansion much bigger than the rest hosting massive beach parties Friday and Saturday nights. The house can be rented for large groups about 12 months in advance for groups of 20 or more.



View of the last four to leave you guys. See you next weekend!

TowerDude: thank you!
TekindusT: haha thanks, that journal was my main motivation to start a tropical journal, but when I realized I haven't made any tropical islands which is what he did, I just had to try it. Glad you liked the result!
Reikhardt: haha thank you!
Evillions: thank you, I love the ducks! I am glad I got your rubber duckie (if you don't believe me, see avatar ;))
